So, you lay down a square and screw it into the square below it? Seems like a lot of work that some might not do.
I reckon.
Storage when not in use is a consideration also.

I see - as in "youse guys" and "dem broads"?
exactly...I had a boss who had gone on to have a good amount of education but every once in awhile one of those would slip out and I would tell him he just liked to trot out that Chicago Public School education...he did not like it when I said that but I thought it quite funny...:LOL:

Hmm, you HAD a boss that was upset with some type of personal insult hurled at him?

Good one. Puns. Wit's special needs nephew.

Raise hands errone at least once seen someone else's car up on cinder blocks. And extra smart they've got the frame nestled in that special recess on the side.

They are screwed together and when not in use they stack easily in a corner of my garage. I got the idea from watching Iron Resurrection. They use them a lot on that show.

l store my GP on blocks with wood shims; I've done it this way for 30 years. Never vertically, though.

Check. A safe and cheap way to store a car up off the susp. and rubber.
A neighborhood friend and I shared a bunch of concrete blocks when we both got cars, because who wanted to waste $$ on stands? I don't why, but we never turned a block on its end for more height and always used 2 instead. Maybe I just knew how easy they were to bust up IDK. I didn't know when lighter haydite blocks started, but all of ours must have been the heavy concrete or else I might not be here today.
You made me remember the long time it took getting a car in the air in those days using just a 1/2 ton bottle jack. And using my dad's lame-ass double open wrenches before I got a socket set for Christmas. And me and a friend installing a 350THM with me and my head on his crotch lifting it together. Ah the good old days.

I almost didn't post that for fear of the rush of posts coming in explaining the dangers of using blocks. I'm fully cognizant of the consequences.

To be clear, I do not work under a car with them- it is strictly to raise the tires off the floor for storage and just enough to clear a gap between the tires and my roller dollies.

Ha! And why do I NOT think it's the part about how close I (persistently and repeatedly) came to death back then? :unsure: I had to think a minute. In less than two months it'll be 50 years since I first met that guy on a double date including my (to become) wife and her (to become his wife) best friend.

The next time I get together with him, and after sufficient fingers of good bourbon, I'ma remind him of that Chevelle ----------and the tranny job.

Calm down, Animal Rights Activists- when I say I enjoy the taste of Eagle Rare, it's not what you think.




It's bourbon. And I love how it brings out the flavor in my Snow Leopard steak.
